Q: What does it mean Smart Home for this apartment?
A: In a nutshell, it means we have integrated and optimised the use of appliances to deliver the best experience and comfort possible and also to look after the environment. We`ve introduced smart controls on the following facilities: aircons, lights and dehumidifier.
1) Smart Speakers: the apartment has 3 smart speakers, 1 in each room. You can use them to control the appliances or to provide you with useful info for your holiday (ie taxi number, weather, turn off the TV, etc.)
2) Smartt Hub: In the Living room there is a tablet that contains the apps to allow you to control the aircons, the dehumidifier and the lights - with a touch. Also the Smart hub will allow to play international Radio stations, browse internet and for facilitate remote support if needed.
3) Smart Aircons: both of our aircon units are connected to the smart speakers : (i.e. jsay "Ok Google, turn on the air"), the Smart hub or mobile phones. They also have climate control schedules that offer cool/warm nights and are environmental friendly. From 2021, on request, the controls for the aircons can be offered for free on guests mobile phones for the duration of their stay.
4) Smart Lights: All the ceiling lights in all 3 rooms are smart. Which mean you can change the colour and intensity of the light to create the right environment for you. Each room has also a lamp(s) that is manually controlled should you prefer.
